GLASS WOUND — How To Tackle?

  • There could be several wounds. Treat the most severe ones first.
  • Bright red-coloured blood can be arterial bleeding from the wrist if the person has placed a hand through the glass.
  • Look for symptoms of shock.
  • Shards of the glass on or embedded in a wound.
  • Wear non-latex disposable gloves to protect yourself as well as the casualty.
  • Do not press down any embedded object as it will only worsen the wound.
  • Sweep up any shards of glass over the casualty to prevent further injury.
  • Dispose of the glass safely, wrap it in layers of newspaper, and tape it up.
